    how to spell these words?

    1.To picture a word is a good way of "harmonic"in learning English. I don't know how to spell "harmonic", please help.

    2. How to say "when there is a gain and lose situation involved" in a short phrase or sentence or word?
    Association of interests?

    These "rolling eyes" are starting to give me the pips. I wish someone would delete the damn thing.

    I think the word you are looking for is 'mnemonic'.

    As for your second query, how big is the loss? Enough to warrant calling it a Pyrrhic victory? or just a 'trade-off'?
